I have been incredibly fortunate in my life to never have to experience the difficulties I see in the world every day. I can’t imagine what it’s like to go hungry. I think it’s a shame that in a country as great as ours, I would look the other way and do nothing.  When Christ says, "when you have done it to the least of these, you have done it unto Me," it cuts straight to the heart.

With that desire in my heart, I preside over Ministere des Bras Ouverts. We’re all looking to make a difference in our world, and I believe that by focusing on communities, we’re going to make the most substantial impact. The world is made up of these important social connections. If you foster them positively, with the scriptures as the sail that pushes us forward, we can change a nation for God and His glory.  Take this journey with us!



An organization that seeks to be the hands and feet of Christ to the Haitian people for the Glory and honor of God, being intentional with the Gospel to build communities that are self sustainable.

We have many active programs that are currently operational through the kindness of many friends and family: The food program; soccer; kids club; women's ministry; school; fruit & tree planting, chicken and goat farms all on the Lifesong - MBO property. 


The basis to most ministries are those individuals who willingly choose to give up their time and resources to serve God in Haiti or stateside either through fundraising or awareness.
